Says the fans don't like their heroes being sent to the back of the grid because an engine or gearbox got changed.
It seems to me that what he's talking about RE the grid penalties is not a free pass for an engine change, but having it not affect a race that people paid money to see.
He'll need to do something about payments to the teams though, because some teams would be less affected by a loss of WCC points than others, and one in particular probably would sacrifice quite a lot of such points if they could change parts and get a WDC.
The aero... I think his points are valid but now new. There have been previous attempts to try to come up with aero regs that would allow cars to run closer together.
Two differences this time
1) One of the smartest operators in F1 in recent times is going to turn his mind to the problem
2) The CRH seems to really want to tackle this one, instead of just leaving it to FIA.
